Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

December 14, 2013 | Asheville Citizen-Times interviews Joe Craven

"No, the pile of jawbones and cake pans on stage before a Joe Craven concert isn't bound for the Dumpster. These found objects are part of the Dixon, Calif., musician's diverse repertoire, which also includes traditional string instruments and digital samplers for electronic looping.

A visual artist, music educator and former museum curator, Craven joins Joe Newberry for various 'SoloJoe' and 'DuoJoe' pieces on Dec. 13 at White Horse. Craven spoke with Scene about his musical tools, fashion sense and working with a certain Hollywood icon."

The multi-instrumentalist virtuoso shares fascinating stories we hadn't heard before about for commercial backgrounds for Hershey's Chocalates and Amtrak in this brief Asheville-Citizen Times article: Joe Craven, king of bedpan mandolin
